About

Miller Playfield is located next to the Miller Community Center and has space for soccer, baseball, softball, a nice play area, and a beautiful spraypark fountain for cooling off in the summer. 

The original playground of 1.68acres was given to the city in 1906, the first land given specifically for a playground. It was the gift of Mrs. Mary M. Miller in commemoration of her boy, Pendleton. Nearby Meany Junior High was named in honor of Washington's most beloved and prominent historian. The original school on this site was named "Longfellow".

Miller Playfield Synthetic Turf Replacement

Miller Playfield is Now Open

Construction is complete at Miller Playfield. The field opened for use by the public on September 9, 2022.

Seattle Parks and Recreation awarded the construction contract for the Miller Playfield Turf Replacement project to Coast to Coast Turf and the project was designed by DA Hogan.

Seattle Parks and Recreation conducted condition assessments on all of our synthetic turf fields in 2018 and the results of these assessments informed both immediate maintenance action on the part of our parks resources and turf crews as well as the order in which the projects were funded for replacement. Seattle Parks and Recreation is investing in state-of-the-art synthetic turf systems that are safe, playable, and durable. We continue to lead the way to developing and installing alternate synthetic turf field design sections/materials.

This project replaced 89,740 sq.ft. of aging synthetic turf at Miller Playfield. This included the removal of the old ‘worn out’ synthetic turf and addressed structural repairs to curbing, sub-subsurface, and drainage. 2022 synthetic turf systems were installed for recreational play. Girls and boys Lacrosse is now Unified Lacrosse, and the soccer and Little League markings remain unchanged except for the removal of the 65-foot pitching distance. New portable pitching mounds are available for use at this site.

Budget

Real-estate Excise Tax II provides $1.52 million for planning, design, and construction.
